Animals and art

Throughout history and across civilisations, animals have been represented in art for their beauty, to tell stories, or to worship the powers they were believed to hold. The bond and fascination between humans and animals is both timeless and universal.

Artists often take solace and inspiration from the animals around them. With so many Australian artists living in rural settings, or simply pet owners, animals are frequent features in many artists’ studios, offering unconditional companionship as well as artistic inspiration.

Find paintings, drawings and prints of all your favourite local wildlife, from the iconic kangaroo to the more unusual cassowary. Travel continents and uncover creatures from all corners of the earth.

Immerse yourself in the beauty, creativity and at times stunningly life like representations in the wonderful Animal Collection.
